Nice to meet up, and welcome to the wilds of rural Angus. It was a shame the show clashed with Crisis, and we had a couple of very late withdrawals from Traders, which was disappointing, but some nice games there I thought.

Apparently the bacon roll van (I would call it a burger van, but the bloke said the bacon rolls were fair flying out the hatch..) did a roaring trade, who would have guessed that proper bacon rolls would be so popular among the wargamer demographic.

The Stalingrad game from Glasgow was particularly spectacular and the handout was the most detailed I’d ever seen!
I did manage to buy some heater shields but yes, it was the cheapest show I've been to for a while. However I did get a Scheltrum catalogue for Neanderthal so profit margins might suddenly rise post-show :D

Oh nice, the Scheltrum stuff is lovely, but I have never really strayed into Steampunk or InterWar, so I just send pics of their stuff to my mate John in Oz to make him jealous.

Yep, my day out worked out cheaply as well, a couple of small warbases items, second hand British engineers for CoC and a ruined building and a Rubicon 251D.

I was tempted by a couple of other items, but I have bought so many bits and pieces from eBay or a shows I tend to forget what I actually have. Focus on one project at a time would help...
